tv   The Daily Show With Jon Stewart  Comedy Central  June 25, 2015 11:00pm-11:32pm PDT

11:00 pm
that's. good because you're down to zero stars. -oh is he? -you're down to zero. i don't give a shit about that. you know what i mean? the star rating thing is not-- can i see that for a second? yeah. let me see that, yeah. ah. yeah, you know-- -whoa. goddammit! goddammit! you son of a bitch! captioning sponsored by comedy central from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show" with jon stewart. ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: welcome to the "the daily show." we have a good show tonight. one of our favorite, one of our favorites ben with us from the beginning of the program, all the way through a young richard lewis will be joining us on the
11:01 pm
program. ( cheers and applause ) why dont we start the show with the opposite of said richard lewis. the pope. ( laughter ) the head of the jewish church, head of the catholic church, the vicar of christ, number one on god's speed dial. 1.2 billion worshipers hanging on the pope's every word, and guess what, the word just came down. >> pope francis issued a nearly 200-page document, casting climate change as a moral issue, not simply a political or economic debate. >> jon: oh, boy, oh, boy, oh, boy oh boy! a 200-page-- ( applause ) 200-page moral treatoise climate change, and just in time for beach season! ( laughter ) what a great read down at l.b.i. i hope it's in the original...
11:02 pm
the pope is weighing in on the sides take action against climate change. it's a lot for the catholic church to take a environmental stance but buddhism is a religion obsessed with recycling. oh! boom! boom! oh, snap! no, you didn't! oh ( bleep ). ( cheers and applause ) that's doesn't usually get a the lot of enthusiasm. not to say the vatican is being a popey-come-lately to this. they recognized climate change for a long time. >> the vatican claims it was among the first institutions to believe that global warming is caused by human activity. the vatican's pontifical academy of sciences was the first exclusive scientific academy in the world. among its first members was
11:03 pm
galileo galilei. ( laughter ) >> jon: i don't know if you really want to list galileo as one of your references. ( laughter ) the catholic church? yeah i remember-- they were lovely people convicted me of heresy, and sentenced me to house arrest for the last nine years of my life. otherwise very forward thinking. tell me more about this magic hand i'm talking into it. here in the america, the republican party has traditionally been pretty pope-pope. ( laughter ) pretty pro-pope. sharing as they do a yearning for the simpler morality of 15th century. but now that the pope has gone rogue, how they gonna handle it? >> joe barton, the senior republican on the energy and commerce committee, says he doesn't consider the pope an expert on environmental issues.
11:04 pm
>> the pope should stay with his job and let us stay with ours. >> jon: that is his job. it's the biggest job of the pope is to tell people when they're being bad. that's why he dresses like a big wet blanket. barton and inhofe who cares about those guys. rick santorum was so catholic he was an altar boy until about six weeks ago. he's so catholic, his crucifix wears a crucifix. >> i think that probably we're better off leaving science to the scientists and focusing on what we do-- what we're really good at, which is-- which is-- which is theexpolg morality. >> jon: oh, yeah no just leave the science to the scientists. by the way-- ( laughter ) what do the scientists who have an overwhelming consensus about global warming say about global warming even republican upon
11:05 pm
front-runner jeb bush is chafing at the pope. >> i don't get economic policy from my-- from my bishops or my cardinals or from my pope. i think religion ought to be about making us better as people and less about things that end up getting into the political realm. >> jon: yeah, religion is about making us better people. politics is about bringing out our worst. and i think we ought to keep those things-- this is weird, because jeb seems very in favor of church and state at least at last week's freedom coalition. >> our faith and moral traditions, it is really the moral foundation of our country, the greatest country on the face of the earth. this conscience should also be respected when people of faith want to take a stand for traditional marriage. >> jon: oh, so there it's okay. perhaps maybe people would be more for preventing global warming if we referred to it as taking a stand for preserving traditional sea levels. it's adam and eve.
11:06 pm
not-- i think that would work. >> as the bible says, it is adam and eve not adam and... ( laughter ) republicans reacting to the pope's honest call for environmental consciousness with hostility is not the way to go, and the pope lays down the doctrine like this, there is only one force on earth powerful enough to sway him. >> exxon has sent a senior lobbyist and another executive over to rome. >> exxon has been lobbying the vatican over the pope's climate change message. >> jon: ah they've appealed to a higher authority than god. ( laughter ) and so in the-- in the words of our lord and savior, jesus christ drill baby drill. we'll be right back.

behave..." ( laughter ) "we don't have to go to iowa. ( applause ) one quick question-- "may i have your car keys some gasoline, and g.t.a. 5?" i almost wish jindal had a chance. we could see how president jindal would negotiate with putin. "now vladimir, you pull out of ukraine you're going to get to go back to iowa. you would like that, wouldn't you? wouldn't a nice colonel dog be worth pulling out of ukraine?" let's be honest bobby is what you call a long shot. the field is crowded. the republicans republicans are are going to need japanese subway pushers. jindal is one of nine potential republican candidates polling under 5%. that's the margin of error. ( laughter ) ( applause ) technically, nine of these
11:14 pm
candidates could be losing to a bowl of regurgitated grape fruit. jindal's only chance to pull ahead would be to deal some solid slams to the democratic front-runner, and there ain't much meat left on that bone. >> when hillary clinton travels there's going to need to be two planes, one for her and her ept raj and one for her baggage. >> the clinton political machine. >> she wasn't transparent about benghazi. she clearly is not trustworthy. >> there is a certain sense they think they're above the law. >> just listening to her is something out of north korea. ♪ if you stare at her she will turn you to stone. ♪ she is the devil incarnate ♪ all right bobby, hillary is a scheming inside the belt way dictator. what have you got? >> i'm going to say this slowly so even hillary clinton can understand this.
